2015 Statelessness Summer Course- Institute on Statelessness and Inclusion
This year, the 4th edition of the Statelessness Summer Course will take place from 3 – 7 August in Tilburg, the Netherlands. We are now accepting applications. Click here for details. The application deadline is 15 April.
The Statelessness Summer Course is a 1-week intensive learning programme for practitioners on statelessness. The course is coordinated and run by the Institute on Statelessness and Inclusion, and is hosted by Tilburg University in the Netherlands (the course was previously run by the Tilburg Statelessness Programme, which now continues its activities under the flag of the Institute). As in previous years, the course is also held in partnership with Open Society Justive Initiative.
The course considers statelessness and the right to nationality from various angles. It deals with legal and policy issues associated with statelessness. Thirty selected participants from civil society, academia, governments and international organisations from around the world come together to learn about statelessness, explore fundamental questions of definition and legal frameworks, and to develop plans for action.
